The Aichi Steel Report 2017 was prepared to assist understanding among our many stakeholders of the approaches taken by Aichi Steel and the Aichi Steel Group in fiscal 2016, ended March 31, 2017. Besides describing these approaches with specific examples, it sets forth as much as possible the causes and future initiatives concerning items for which targets have not yet been met.
This fiscal year, we have carefully examined our report based on the CSR materiality we identified last fiscal year, and have created content that more fully meets the needs of every stakeholder. As this year’s Special Feature, we have included a report on the workstyle reform we are driving within the company and the new administration building we have just completed (pp. 11-14 of this report).
As before, this report was prepared using a Universal Design*1 (UD) font,*2 and use of color, volume of text, text size and other factors were also taken into consideration to create a more easily readable report.
*1 Design that enables all persons, regardless of age, gender, or disability, to make use of products, services, housing, or facilities, both conveniently and comfortably.
*2 A typeface design based on the concept of universal design.
